| p.1 #9 · Why do Nikon images look sharper and better to me? Please help another undecided. |
The Canon 35mm f/2 is a very sharp lens and can be had for about $260 on B+S.
On my tests of the D800 w/50G f/1.4 and 5DM2 w/50 f/1.4 the lenses are very close in sharpness. The Canon 50 f/1.4 focus can be finicky but if you nail the focus the lens is very usable at f/1.4. Here are some 5DM2+50:
Image #1 @f/1.4
Image #2 @f/1.4
Image #3 @f/1.4
Image #4 @f/1.4
Image #5 @f/8
I can't afford full frame! That's what I was saying. Unless it is at least a 5d classic, I can't see the "goodness" I like to see. When I look at the 35 1.8g or 50 1.8g, I see razor sharp on the crop cameras. Whether that sharpness is the end all beat all, I don't know. I just want a good portrait lens, so maybe sharpness isn't what I need. I just can't stand the slightest bit oof or soft (again, i have no idea if that is good or bad.)
And honestly, like many people that have no idea what they're talking about, I'd be interested in selling my skills as a photographer with nice primes. (family photos, outdoor, no studio.)
edit: and no offense intended, but those don't look super sharp to me, whether they were canon or nikon, though I truly appreciate you posting them. Maybe it was the subject matter?
